Write a patch?  :-)  [1]

To be serious: I don't know autogen.  What autogen options are important
for "missing", how can it find out output file names, should they be
touched so that a subsequent make run won't try to build them again?

http://www.gnu.org/software/autogen/man1-autogen.html suggests that the
output file name computation may not be easy.


[1] If you require this support in a released version of Automake, then
    obviously there may lie more than one patch ahead.  ;-)
